Since 2006, the Hagen cult and cabbage dryers have been alive again and on the road, with the sons of Willi Wildschwein and Milla Kapolke now grown into a family band. All very much to the delight of old and new fans. Their shows, mostly centered around the great pyromaniac spectacle "Solar Music", are still an event. In the summer of 2012 a new venture was embarked upon: On four evenings Grobschnitt performed together with the Philharmonic Orchestra Hagen, whereby "Rockpommel's Land" ("Mists" Legacy) was performed in its entirety. As a thank-you for the faithful fans, there's now this EP with two recorded titles. "Symphony" (from the first album) fits thematically perfectly and turns out to be a mix of Deep Purple's powerful way of interlocking a symphony orchestra contrapuntally with rock, and almost Santana-like percussion and organ-driven Latin rock, including euphoric improvisations. "Beyond" mutates into a rapturous sailor ballad. Let's hope that more of this will follow on video and audio carriers!
